The Secret of Kells July 2, 2012

is a nice little animated feature with simple yet elegant animation, astonishing voice acting (especially by the children), beautiful Irish-themed music and a lyrical pace for an action/adventure story. The Secret of Kells is a story of the writing and illustrating of the Book of Kells, albeit a fictionalized version thereof.  It has wonderful elements, besides the beautiful music, most notably the characterization of the wood fairy Aisling who helps Aiden escape the murderous Northmen (my people).  This children’s voice acting is just sublime here;  this movie won an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature, so I expect nobody actually hated it.

I suspect this would be a great movie for fans of induced altered states of awareness; I used beer. YMMV.
